Sunday Strange microfiction challenge

The title of this oddity translates roughly from the German as ‘The Chosen Few’.

The Man Child knelt surrounded by his personal Guardian Angels, the cake hosting a solitary candle with magical powers granting him a single wish.
Time bore no relevance here, but he felt he had a right to know.
Looking at these majestic beings as they gazed adoringly at their charge, he took a deep breath.
He had been told at an early age that his mother had gone to heaven to join the angels, so  he simply asked:
‘Which one of you do I call Mom?’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
